Keith Ely and Associates (KEA Advisors), in collaboration with Pittsburg State University Foundation, Inc., announces the establishment of the KEA Advisors/Mark Martincic Diesel Commercial Truck Endowed Scholarship.

This $25,000+ scholarship endowment will benefit students pursuing a bachelor's degree in automotive technology at Pittsburg State University, with a specific focus on Diesel and Commercial Truck (Class 5-8 trucks). 

The Endowment, created through a generous pledge from KEA Advisors, will be managed by the Pittsburg State University Foundation in accordance with their established policies. The purpose of the scholarship is to support students who demonstrate a commitment to excellence in the field of diesel and commercial truck technology, with a preference for those interested in a career for an OE commercial truck dealership.
